This webinar will review the molecular basis for the different types of targeted therapy, including immunotherapy, for periocular and orbital tumors. Through understanding the molecular basis, it will also become clear the mechanism for resistance and side effects with this class of medication. We will discuss the possible future use for targeted therapy and what are some current limitation in neoadjuvant or adjuvant use. Specifically, the issues with margin control with neoadjuvant use of hedgehog inhibition.
